The Gist

Targeted by Putin

While Mike Pesca’s off hosting Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me, we bring you two of our favorite segments from the past few months. Bill Browder tells the story of how he went from investing in Russian markets to fleeing the wrath of Vladimir Putin. He’s the author of Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice. For the Spiel, we debut our new line of other NFL erotica. From now until April 6, tweet titles of imaginary movies to @slategist using the hashtag #NotAMovie. Join Slate Plus! Members get bonus segments, exclusive member-only podcasts, and more.
